3.1 Conclusion

Hello everyone, and welcome to the final lesson. So to recap, we've learnt how to use the blend tool and clipping masks to create a striking and simple design. We've looked at how to make shadows with the blend tool, and how to sink parts of letters inside themselves. We've learned how to use the shear tool to create different angles. We've looked at how the free transform tool can be used to create perspective. We've learned how to create bubble like lettering using blur effects. We've also looked at how to use the extrude and bevel tool to quickly but effectively create bold, 3D letters. We've lettered how you can map letters around a shape. And we've learnt how to create ribbon style lettering using the pen tool and gradients. I hope you've enjoyed this course and you've found it useful. If you have any questions or want to share your 3D typography with me, I'd be very excited to see it. You can find me on Instagram @mattwivz. Thanks for watching and see you next time.
